About

I am an academic doctor at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, qualified from UCL Medical School, London, UK. My work is in the field of academic cardiology, digital health & artificial intelligence and quality improvement in healthcare. As an aspiring academic cardiologist, I spend most of my free time on sports and nutrition science as I search for the roads to a healthy heart and a calm mind. This is a website to show my work and more importantly the work of incredible people I meet on my journey through the health and tech world of the UK, the USA and globally.
